The National Currency and Stamp Factory (FNMT) began in 2019 the issuance of a series of four coins, one per year.

They are dedicated to commemorating the V Centenary of Juan Sebastián Elcano’s First Around the World.

This piece, which is the fourth and last piece in the series, will be available for purchase next Monday, July 4, to commemorate this milestone.

The coin is silver, weighs 27 grams, has a diameter of 40 millimeters and 6,000 units have been minted at a recommended retail price of 65.55 euros (VAT included).

The arrival of Elcano marked the end of the expedition that, promoted by Carlos V, sailed in September 1519 in search of the Spice Islands, in the confines of the demarcation of the Treaty of Tordesillas, under the command of Fernando de Magallanes, with five ships and about 250 crew members.

On the reverse of the minted coin, a representation of the arrival of the ship Victoria in Seville is reproduced in colour.

At the top of the coin, horizontally and in capital letters, the value of the coin ’10 euro’; on the left, the Mint mark. At the bottom of the coin, in a circular direction and in capital letters, the legend ‘V Centenario de la Vuelta al Mundo’.
